Frequently Asked Questions
What is the cost to professors and students?
The biggest question we get is about the cost of our digital learning experience. The experience is 100% free to professors and students. We are a privately funded creative studio of designers, builders, data scientists, storytellers and innovative thinkers dedicated to the advancement of learning by developing digital learning experiences, which take students beyond the textbooks,
lectures and exams.
What information will you need from me to initiate the simulation set up for my class?
Simply fill out the form at the top of this page using your .edu email address. Once we receive your information, you will receive a link to register your class.
Can I register multiple classes? If so, how do I monitor them separately?
Yes, a professor can run our experience in multiple classes. Each class will have a different leaderboard and private link to access completed assignments and track student performance.
Can students work in groups or teams?
Yes, our experience is specifically designed for students to participate individually (Solo Mode) or in a team of two students (Duos Mode). These two options will ensure all students complete each lesson and contribute equally to their own level of success.
What is the best way to roll out the experience to students?
After you register your class and choose your start date, you will be given access to an introduction page for students with the following information:
- Experience Overview
- Introduction Video
- Frequently Ask Questions
- Technical Support Information
How do I track student performance?
Professors and students will have access to our real-time leaderboard that tracks progress and adds a layer of competition to the experience. Professors will also have a private link with access to view all completed assignments from students.
Are students provided with daily deadlines?
Students must complete the assignments within each lesson before they can move on to the next lesson. The experience is designed to be flexible for students, but we provide a “suggested” timeline that demonstrates how to stay on track during the experience.
Our system will alert an individual student or team if they fall behind in assignments.
What type of technical support is provided to students?
Technical support hours are as follows:
Monday – Friday, 10:00 am – 7:00 pm (Eastern Time) via our live chat feature or email.
A team member is also available via email on the weekends for technical support from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm (Eastern Time).
How are individual assignments scored or graded?
This is a client-agency experience, with UHYPEIT acting as the client and students as the agency. As each deliverable (assignment) is completed, it is scored within 24 hours. There may be times we ask students for revisions to improve assignment scores.
- Students can track assignment scores in their dashboard
- Students and professors can track performance on our real-time leaderboard
What is the suggested weight of the simulation with regards to the student’s final semester grade?
This is up to each professor, but the weight of the simulation typically ranges from 10% to 25% of the total semester grade.
What have other professors thought about this experience?
While UHYPEIT Las Vegas is NEW for the fall 2020 semester, our previous experiences have been featured in universities across the country. Here is just some of the feedback we have received about our previous digital learning experiences…
